• Heating

    There are three major ways via which heat energy can get transferred from one entity to another. They are: Radiation: In this method, there is no physical contact between two bodies and heat gets conveyed from hot body to a … Continue reading

  • Boilers

    A boiler is a self-sufficient combustion system which is mainly used for heating of water or other fluids. It generally consists of a closed metal container or a vessel in which the pressurized water is subjected to heat and then … Continue reading

  • Level Measurement of Bulk Solids

    Level detection in case of bulk solids or powders in a bin/silo can be problematic due to following reasons: It is necessary to transform the level into volume and mass for measurement purpose. The characteristics of the material under measurement … Continue reading

  • Nuclear Level Measurement

    Nuclear or nucleonic level measurement devices can be employed in both point and continuous level detection applications. They are usually applied in fields where all other level measurement techniques fail to work owing to their capability of working with hazardous … Continue reading

  • Blocked Chute Detector

    An ore chute may be defined as “an inclined passage, from 3 to 4 ft (approx. 1 m) square, for the transfer of ore to a lower level, car, conveyor, etc. It may be constructed through waste fills.”1 Blocked Chute … Continue reading

  • Types of Level Gauges

    Several forms of level gauges exist in the industry. Depending upon the types of liquids such as water, oil, diesel etc. measured by level gauges, they can be classified into following categories: Tank level gauges: These level sensing devices generally … Continue reading

  • Level Gauges

    As suggested by the name, level gauges are the type of level measurement devices which are mainly employed in the industrial instrumentation field to detect the level of liquids or fluids contained by a storage tank or process vessel. These … Continue reading

  • Inductive Level Sensors

    “Inductive proximity sensors are non-contact proximity devices that set up a radio frequency field with an oscillator and a coil. The presence of an object alters this field and the sensor is able to detect this alteration.”1 These sensors are … Continue reading
